The Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo ( www.brazosvalleyfair.com) will be conducted October 21-23, 2016. It will be an exciting and fun-filled 3-day event consisting of multiple jackpot shows for cattle (steers and heifers), swine, sheep and goats as well as an open Brahman show. As far as entertainment, Jason Boland and the Stragglers will perform Friday night followed by Steve Wariner on Saturday night.
For the shows, families must enter themselves online by mid-night, September 23rd (Quality Counts numbers are required). The Livestock Show Information can be accessed at http://www.brazosvalleyfair.com/p/events/livestock .
In the Junior Shows (Ring B only), a $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to the Grand Champion.
This year’s theme is “Family Favorites”.
The Texas 4-H Healthy Lifestyle Ambassadors, as well as the state food show committee, has assisted in selecting this theme. We believe it will be one that is fun and educational. The 4-H Food Show packet will be released September 1, and will contain resources to assist in teaching to the theme. In addition, the rules and guidelines will be in this packet for all seniors participating at the state level.
“Family Favorites” can be any dish that families enjoy made in a more healthy way. The theme could also be used to teach the importance of family meal times. Some 4-H members might consider their family heritage and focus on a dish that represents this. Obviously, there are many ways to have fun and creative with this theme!
